First Time Arrow Build
So, I bought myself a dozen Day Six, 300 spine arrows with 50gr half outs. I assembled and fletched them up this weekend. When I assembled the arrows, I weighed each shaft and insert individually, and did my best to match the heaviest shafts and the lightest points to try and get every arrow to be the same weight. Well, after assembly and fletching, I weighed all of the arrows with the same 100 grain field point to get an idea on weight. Well, 11/12 arrows are within 2 grains of each other (Max 523.5, Min 521.6, Avg 522.5). I can live with this variation, and don't think I'm going to see any noticeable differences in impact with any of the arrows in this batch.
However, I do have one arrow that's coming in a bit lighter than the rest at 519.9gr. I assume the fix for this when I go to shoot these arrows this weekend is to try and find a head that's a tad heavier than 100gr to bring total weight up to match the rest of the arrows that are all +/- 2gr from each other.
Is this something that's relatively common to have happen, where 1 or 2 arrows is just a tad light or a tad heavy from the rest despite trying to match heavy shafts with light points?
